I think Lady Gage nailed it when she spoke about how magazines have started to go through changes, however they need to focus on changing magazine covers. She was speaking about the photograph of her own cover for the month, when she stated that she felt her "skin looked too perfect. I felt my hair looked too soft...I do not look like this when I wake up in the morning...I don't even look like this." Gaga was referring to both the cover and how she was done up for the evening.
Lady Gaga said in her acceptance speech that "It is fair to write about the change in your magazines. But what I want to see is the change on your covers. When the covers change, that's when culture changes." This is so true and so important to hear from a celebrity with her reach. I love Glamour and I love reading magazines but making small changes (aka the occasional plus size model in the magazine) or writing about body image struggles, etc. is not going make a big enough difference. I want to see more! Society needs more! I believe that photographs are worth a thousand words and I truly believe that once magazines start including Average Girls in magazines, a difference will be made.
Check out Lady Gaga's image below! Clearly her waist is very photoshopped and there are no imperfections. Now picture Lady Gaga without hours of retouching...I bet she's still just as beautiful on the outside as she is on the inside.
What do you think? Do you want to see Average Girls on the cover of magazines?
